Should Triple H lose the sledgehammer?

IMO Triple H's character has been devalued by him using the sledgehammer, nowadays it seems like he cant win a PPV match without using the sledgehammer.

 

I think Triple H should lose the sledgehammer. Maybe he could use it a couple times a year, but not too often.

 

It's almost to the point where he could put a face on the hammer and start carrying it around and calling it Sledgy.

 

Then he'll divorce Steph and marry Sledgy.

 

 

He used the Sledgehammer against Ric Flair, against Big Show, against John Cena, and he'll probably use it again this Sunday.

 

It's gotten too predictable. Triple H needs to lose the sledgehammer.

You're right. I was thinking the exact same thing when he used it recently (I forget when).

 

If you think back to when it was first used, it was seen as a "special" weapon, something he really only pulled out when desperate times called for desperate measures (Like Foley's barbed wire bat - hence the pop when he took it out of the box in the promo with Edge before Mania). It was the weapon. Now it's getting to feel like he can't win without it, he has no choice but to use it. This is devaluing him and the weapon.

But it's Mr Sledgy! Check the Predictions. :D

 

 

Seriously though, he's used it for YEARS, but it does seem like he's using it every match that he wins now. Maybe that's why he didn't beat Cena at Mania - he didn't have Mr Sledgy with him.

Actually, Super Hero Cena, kicked out after being hit by Sledgy at Mania.

 

And I'm saying he uses it in like every PPV match.

Mr. Sledgy needs to be used less IMO. That way it will get a bigger pop when Triple H pulls out Sledgy. Because like I said, Sledgy has become predictable.

 

If Sledgy is used like once or twice a year, then Sledgy will gain his power back.

I can see where people are coming from about it devaluing Triple H and The Sledgehammer - but i dont really look at it that way. I think it suits his gimmick perfectly, as it puts across the fact that he will do anything to get the win.

 

I dont see it as being any different from The Dudleys getting the tables, or Foley pulling out a bag of thumbtacks. Its a signature of these guys, so why remove something they've become synonyms with?

The problem is that it makes it look like he NEEDS it to win, not that he'll do anything.

Foley only started on the thumbtacks recently - it's Abyss' signature.

 

The barbed wire 2x4 or baseball bat is Foley's signature, and he pulls that out virtually every match now.

But he only has a match once or twice a year. With HHH its all the time.

Good point, makes me laugh when you can clearly see his hand covering it which makes it a wtf move. Now that he is slated to turn face it might help his character if he didn't use it as much as it isn't really a face thing to whack out sledgy in a normal match. But it would seem strange not having him use it. I can see where people are coming from about it looking like he needs it to win though aswell and it isn't really helping him that much. Remember 2003 when nearly every World Heavyweight Title defence he would use sledgy or get DQ'd etc etc, in my oppinion that was poor and did nothing at all to develop the career of Trips apart from getting him official heel status.

The Ankle Lock is a finishing move, and a legal move at that. Mr Sledgy is a signature foreign object shot. Dont try and compare them.

Eddie did the same with his chair shot & playing possam' date=' i didnt hear anyone complaining then, IHHHN (Internet HHH Negativity) is beyond boring now.[/quote']

 

True, but he didnt use it every single match, and it didnt often seem like he couldnt win without it. Mr Sledgy is just bordering on overkill atm.

but its his signiture move' date=' like Kurt Angle has the Ankle Lock & The Angle Slam, Chris Benoit Has The Crossface & The Swandive, HHH has The Pedigree & The Sledghammer Shot.[/quote']

 

Hmmm, so why is Sledgy the only 'move' there that is a weapon shot?
